Most events will require a combination of TYPE I, TYPE II, and TYPE III Points of Distribution (POD). Counties must conduct POD site surveys and selections prior to events and pre-determine the TYPE based on available space, 2 or 4 lane roads, and topographic features. Conventional Hazard Analysis practices must be applied to avoid known flood planes, surge areas, potential blow-down hazards, and other potential impediments.
